Turffontein racecourse stages a valuable card today, with the first race set to go off at 11:10am (UK Time). To help you try and find a few winners, here's which horse's Magic Tips has tipped up on the South African Horse Racing HollywoodBets Blog this morning.

Turffontein Tips - Saturday 16th September

Race 1 - BARBARESCO (4)

BARBARESCO has produced two good second place finishes to date. He raced from just off the pace last time, but found one too good in the form of Sandringham Summit who has won a Grade 1 and 2 since. The son of Gimmethegreenlight would have strengthened up during his time off the track. He jumps from a good draw of three and should take a power of beating.

Race 2 - WOMAN OF POWER (8)

WOMAN OF POWER produced a promising debut over 1000m on the Vaal Classic course. She returns from an 18-week break, during which time she would have strengthened up. The daughter of Vercingetorix meets the right field today and she can go one better.

Race 4 - BIRTHRIGHT (8)

BIRTHRIGHT produced an eye-catching debut effort over 1200m at the Vaal. He was green in running, but finished his race off well. The son of William Longsword would have gained from the experience and would have strengthened up during his time off the track. He will be ideally suited to the 1700m and if fit, he should be the one to beat.

Race 6 - TAIL OF THE COMET (5)

TAIL OF THE COMET followed up his impressive debut victory with a good third-place finish in the Grade 2 TabGold Umkhomazi Stakes. It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. The son of Gimmethegreenlight clearly has ability and he carries a handy galloping mass of 54kgs. If jumping on terms, he should be the one to beat.


PUERTO MANZANO is better than his last start in the Grade 1 Hollywoodbets Durban July. He returns from an 11-week break which may have done him the world of good. He has won three times and finished third once from five starts on this course. He does have bigger plans for the season, but is the class horse in the race and may be the one to side with.


Tail Of The Comet (Race 6) is Magic Tips' best bet of the day at Turffontein on Saturday.
